Even if it doesn’t “count” for ABA, there is a Eurasian Tree Sparrow near the San Pedro port that many birders suspect came to us from an Asian boat. ABA doesn’t recognize ship assisted birds as countable, but it’s still a very interesting individual to check out!
364. Eurasian Tree Sparrow (likely ship assisted)
365. Wandering Tattler
366. Violet-green Swallow
